Whether they are 4-5 years old or 18 years old, girls want to be fashionable. How many times have you dressed in your mother’s dress, wore her high heels or makeup and imagine you were on the catwalk? But there comes when playing is no longer fun. As girls grow they will experiment more things, especially in terms of makeup. Most teenage girls use excessive makeup and in return their skin damages as time goes by. So at what age should you allow your daughter to wear makeup?
Try to understand things more clearly
Psychologists say that for some girls makeup means a step towards maturity. Analyze their situation better and don’t give up too easily when your daughter will start saying out loud : “But all the girls at school wear makeup!” or “It’s not fair..” etc. If your daughter wants to use makeup just like her other colleagues because this will make her seem more noticeable among boys, this is when you are dealing with some dangerous signals. And if you let her use makeup as adults, she can send the message that she is now allowed to do other things that adults do. Maybe you are not mentally and physically ready for it.
Health hazards of cosmetics
Girls need to know that it’s allowed to wear makeup, but it’s not allowed to use in excessive amounts or to use cheap and unsafe products that may eventually damage their skin.
In addition, they must use cosmetics specific to their age. The chemicals found in makeup are not healthy for their skin and are not at all suitable for girls younger than 18 years. So if your daughter is ready to use makeup, you must make sure that she is taking care of her skin by using cleansers or natural remedies.
A great alternative for mascara is an eyelash growth serum. Opt for a eyelash serum
that contains as many natural ingredients as possible. The eyelash growth serum you choose will make your daughter’s lashes more healthy, long and thick. If you are not sure what to buy, search online for lash growth reviews where you can find a lot of useful and great tips.
What cosmetics are suitable for her age?
Generally, 12 year old girls do not need makeup. Maybe just a bit of gloss and a blush specially created for her age. For up to 12 years she can use an eyeshadow. Between 13 and 14 you can allow them to use mascara or an eyeliner pencil. In any case you should avoid black, brown tones; the recommended tones are copper-gold-brown. And if you decide that it’s time for your daughter to use makeup, get her own make-up bag. It is not advisable to share with others your brushes and other accessories that come into direct contact with skin. A makeup kit for a teenager should not contain a lot: just some moisturizing cream, translucent mineral powder, peach or pink blush, some makeup brushes , eye shadow in neutral shades (golden brown is ideal, regardless of eye color), natural mascara and a clear gloss.
